Today we have the November edition of The Fairness Doctrine, a debate show moderated and produced by Jennifer Sullivan, host of TV show, also host of the TV show On the Table With the Green Party. This episode’s topic of the debate is medical marijuana. Advocates are pushing for a new amendment proposal for the 2016 ballot after last year’s measure failed to obtain the 60 percent voter approval needed to pass. Arguing for medical cannabis is Ben Pollara, the campaign manager at United for Care, which is the group sponsoring the petition to put the issue on the ballot next year. Arguing against marijuana is Kevin A Sabet PhD, an author, consultant and adviser to 3 US presidents and the only policy staffer to serve both Democrat and Republican administration.
